Well, he doesn't really a choice, does he?
Ari's been calling and screaming at him.
Now keep on this tweet THREAD, and let me show you how closely I'm watched, and how much @THR is spinning for Ari. /1 nytimes.com/2018/10/18/wor…
3/ Entire section is spin & falsehoods.
SHOW US PROOF THE MONEY HAS BEEN RETURNED & MSB NO LONGER OWNS A % OF WME.
Because as of today, he does. That murdering beast owns a piece of the agency. Every artist represented by them is sending their hard-earned money into his pocket.
Dear MSM Experts in... whatever:
KSA might need USA more than we need them, BUT
Jared needed MbS much, much more than MbS needed him.
Jared = weak spot.
Focus on him, not Trump. You can unravel this.
Here's the deal w/lots of leaky parts, who will squeal:
Hollywood agents always have an assistant listening in on their calls. ALWAYS. Every call.
It's pretty much the entire job: call sheets & listening in.
They take copious notes.
If I were an enterprising @washingtonpost journalist, I'd be tracking down some assistants.
Quick thread on @nytimes article, trying to cover Saudi MBS' slap-and-tickle affair with my industry.
First, the bad news. You forgot SOFTBANK & WME, @jimrutenberg. Maybe pick up on that thread & run with it. You've got some competition. So giddy-up. /1 nytimes.com/2018/10/14/bus…
2/ Folks fear repercussions. This is the truth about our industry. It's unfortunate that whistle-blowers, even innocuous ones, face the threat of losing their livelihoods b/c there are no safe channels.
Maybe we should look at that.
Thanks for getting someone, even if anon, Jim.
3/ Jared may have facilitated a lot of this trust-washing tour. Did he receive any fees for MBS investments?
Is that why Ari called & yelled at him when Khashoggi was brutally murdered?
Considering Jared is a White House official, we need to know the details.
Please follow up.
I appreciate every follower. I didn't set out to have any of you, to be honest. You are a great surprise.
The mission was just to put out information on the long history of Donald Trump & organized crime - to fill in the gaping holes in that story, left by MSM.
In doing so... /1
2/ I have researched and re-read stories about mafia violence that bear too many similarities to what happened to Mr. Khashoggi.
This is the way of that world.
Our bodies are mere vehicles for their power. We are pieces on a chessboard. They will bomb us, mutilate us, rape us...
3/ ... poison us, throw us off buildings, beat us, hang us, bury us alive in cement, drown us, & commit swaths of genocide to move us out of the way of some natural resource they want to exploit.
Still, every story like Khashoggi's is shocking. It's a horror...
These a**holes are doing this with full @GOP & Trump campaign knowledge & support. They are trying to manifest the violent "angry mob" rhetoric that the @SenateGOP is deploying to try & hold their majority. Don't fall for it. Check every image being captured on them. /1
They own a piece of the agency. That means a % of every artist's earnings goes into that murderer's wallet.
Think on that.
This deal was made by Ari AFTER MBS kidnapped a PM, imprisoned & tortured members of his own family (Ritz), & waged war on Yemen. hollywoodreporter.com/news/hollywood…
I know he came into town, bought the 4 Seasons, and put on his charm offense for the whole town. Lots of people were swept up in it.
But it's very different to then take his money & give away a % of your business in return. It's about time Hollywood vets the money it takes in.
Writers @AoDespair & @ChuckWendig - 2 very powerful voices - are relentlessly trolled on this platform. They have been fratted (coordinated reports by trolls to get their accounts shut down), doxxed (personal info exposed for real life attacks & threats), & one was just fired. /1
2/ I admire these men greatly. Not just for their talent, but for their ability to sustain these attacks. They are on the front lines, taking every hit - WITHOUT EMPLOYER SUPPORT - for our 1st amendment right.
The @WGAWest needs to step up and fight for them & all of us. (cont)
3/ Here is what I'm doing (along with encouraging our union):
I am working w/ a group of researchers to TRACK EVERY TROLL WHO COMES 4 THEM. 😈
Whether their Russian bot or Alt-Right unf*ckable - those idiots don't realize that they're in the daylight every time they attack...
Trump's biggest weapon is his RHETORIC.
The fevered rallies, capitulation of @SenateGOP, press manipulation, Twitter - ALL rhetoric. There is a machine coordinating the rhetoric across @GOP leadership & media to galvanize his power.
I'm going to tell you how to defeat it. /1
2/ Punch back directly at the semantics & re-orient their meaning. Do this WITHOUT outrage. If you do it from outrage, you will lose. You will.
What do I mean by this?
I'll give you an example with a single word: MOB.
Guess what? That's the word I've been using for nearly 2 yrs.
3/ It has worked unbelievably well to punch a narrative through the noise of Twitter. I am an anonymous account, & I have gone from 0 followers to over 50k because of that one, 3-letter word. Because of it's potency.
I can & have tied it right to Donald with his own history.
What strange times for writers.
Our leashes, to reach our dishes, shortening by the day.
We are being tested. Or you are - about us?
How shall we offer voice? To please your choice -
or share our own?
Do you strike us down - or temper?
Your palate teased by Nazi breezes... /1
... Beliefs even they do not subscribe.
And yet, to its manufactured will, your weakness bends.
My pen is old.
It's traveled with me.
A tracker - a map - a past that the dark, itchy fingers of strangers cannot wait to unfold.
Let them. But do you abet them..? /2
Do you hold my pen against my neck, while yours is lost or ink-less?
Is that the strike to end us?
Then cheer for cowards.
Praise the artless.
Kneel before the throne of trolls.
The writer's pen will sink into the earth.
Find new ground.
And bring life once more. /3
Here is Jared Kushner, smiling and laughing away in the oval office after KNOWING that his buddy MSB had ordered the torture & murder of Jamal Khashoggi. #CruelJared
His wife seems super happy too.
She's known Kanye for years, btw. As has Jared. Thanks to a Kardashian social circle & Josh. Kanye is their stunt. Because they're "hidden geniuses" & "moderating forces" inside the White House.
Or, as everyone in journalism knows them, "leakers."
Jared Kushner was in the oval office for that Kanye spectacle. Smiling big, with the press pool all around him.
Did any reporter question Jared about MBS & Khashoggi?
Any questions about the reports that MBS claimed Jared is "in my pocket,"?! vanityfair.com/news/2018/10/j…
I'm not f*cking done with this.
Hey WH PRESS POOL!
Did any one of you think to ask Jared if he gave US intel to his murdering buddy, MBS, in exchange for pressuring the Qataris (via joint UAE blockade) to bail our his 666 5th Ave real estate debacle?
No? Too complex? Okay...
How about just asking him & Trump whether or not they sat on intel about MBS' threat on Khashoggi's life?
You remember him, right? The journalist who was reportedly murdered inside the embassy in Turkey.
No? Still too hard for you?
Kanye was that important - that distracting?
"Loner" being a predominant trait his teacher remembers decades later, along with Pica & handwriting issues (motor skills).
There's a point when we have to talk about a glaring commonality in the young male, Alt-Right trolls out of 4Chan/Gab/Reddit.
It is actually serious.
2006 was a helluva year for Putin the killer.
The blood money pot behind his rise from deputy mayor St. Petersburg to FSB director to RU President was getting exposed. Including his cut. thedailybeast.com/russian-whistl…
That dirty money pot had been building since the fall of USSR in early '90s.
The free world is now coming for it. We will rip that money from them.
This is what Donald Trump is in place to try and help prevent.
The dark money pot is all Putin cares about. Stop buying into the story of Putin the former KGB agent & Soviet romanticist.
He's a mob boss.
Love that @maddow went after the Alfa Server story tonight.
As a reminder, we've kinda been on it for like... oh, say 2 years.
So, it didn't just disappear. No. Many folks have worked tirelessly to connect all the dots. Here's one of the more recent threads.
Grateful also that @maddow covered the glaring omissions from that article: 1. The Mueller indicted & convicted Van Der Zwaan - SIL of German Khan (Alfa bank partner, who also not in article). 2. The Steele Dossier.
Then, there's the man Alfa launders for: Semion Mogilevich...
Some Far Right extreme reversals that Sept-Oct 2018 brought to the world: 1. Liberals went from "snowflakes" to a dangerous "mob" - requiring Rand Paul's wife to keep a gun by her bed. 2. Alt-Right went from "Gorilla Mindset" alphas to men who need their mommies to defend them.
3. Nazis went from despising "Chad" (their term for whiny, silver spoon, prep school boys who succeed from privilege) to embracing King Chad of Chadlandia, Kavanaugh. 4. @LindseyGrahamSC screeched & clutched his pearls, & thinks he found his balls.
Wait... he's always done that.
5. Lastly, the total abandonment of Taylor Swift by the White Supremacists who've had her back since Kanye stormed the stage & stole her moment 9 years ago.
Oh, & unrelated to Swift's pro-Dem vote stance, the Nazis now embrace... Kanye West.
When you have eyes directly on the RU-backed propaganda machine, you can predict that which seems unpredictable at the time.
I watched them weaponize this organic movement.
The emotional terrorism inflicted on our nation by @GOP around Dr. Ford/ Kavanaugh was inevitable. /1
2/ For new followers, and many older ones, there may still be some confusion over the seemingly disparate subjects covered by this twitter account.
They are not separate topics.
They are all related, because I'm metaphorically standing in the money pot underneath it all.
3/ If you stand there with me and look up, here is what you'll see:
- The Alt-Right media machine. Coordinating with both conservative PR firms (many of which are registered foreign agents in the FARA database), and Hill Staffers.
Here is how @SenateDems@DNC@HouseDemocrats need to fight: 1. Expose how PR firms & Senate Staff coordinate money and messaging. 2. Expose dirty tricksters who both create and capitalize on #1 above. Especially Chuck Johnson. Expose that shitbird like there's no tomorrow.
3. EXPOSE MARK JUDGE's HISTORY W/ CHUCK JOHNSON & "dopple-gate" crew. Track that sh*t from Alt-Right players & Barbara Ledeen, spittled out of Hatch ("mixed up") before Ed Whelan got his thread out (oops), & ending w/@SenatorCollins. It's not a complex web. It's a straight-line.
4. Demand investigations of all THREE above for their role in Dr. Ford's email hack, death threats, and leaks to "journalists" about her name and address. She testified they were on her lawn before any reporting was public about her name & was genuinely confused how.
More recklessness in Kavanaugh's financials.
He spotted taking his Georgetown crew on AZ trip. He cannot afford this risk.
Kav's friendship circle has remained tight for 30+ yrs. And Kavanaugh routinely put currying favor w/them OVER the welfare of his household. #ShittyProvider
@ninaandtito made spreadsheets of Kavanaugh's financials from his disclosures. These numbers are coming from him.
This is what MSM press AND THE SENATE should have done. They failed. #ShittyProvider
Kavanaugh's reckless financial history makes him a prime target for outside influence. Indeed, in 2017 - just before his formal nomination, an unnamed source cleared all his debt. Exactly who did this has yet to be investigated. #WhoOwnsKavanaugh medium.com/@gregolear/sup…
Late last year, POST Gorsuch confirmation:
Judicial Crisis Network, the big MONEY behind Kavanaugh, KNEW there were BIG problems with confirming an upcoming Supreme Court NOMINEE.
IT IS IN WRITING. From them.
All indications that nominee was Kavanaugh. maddogpac.com/blogs/spicy-fi…
They KNEW Kavanaugh had financial issues AT THE VERY LEAST.
Because there are deep ties between Mark Judge and JCN, it is more than likely that they also knew about Kavanaugh's history with drinking and girls. @senatemajldr would have had this information late last year as well.
That's the question that will haunt every sitting Senator - Rs, Ds, & Is.
Because they know. They've seen his financials. And chose to ignore them.
So, I'm going to get the answer - and make sure it gets out.
So, you'll know too. 😈
